Six Sigma Black Belt Certification

I would like to know to what educational degree one can compare a Lean Six Sigma (L6S) Blackbelt certification? Thanks for your input.

6 Sigma Black Belt Certification

Compare the job-description and 6Sigma history to note that Black-belts are dedicated to short-cycle projects that fit into the continuous improvement program.
Take the organizational size in the role and see that in bigger companies connect their high profiles to these tasks. They can prove their capabilities and managerial skills. I'd suggest here a bachelor level as educational degree. But be aware that such level can also be achieved by experience and additional training.

LSSBB Certification

A Lean Six Sigma Black Belt (LSSBB) is a professional who is well versed in the Lean Six Sigma Methodology, who leads improvement projects, typically in a full-time role. A LSSBB possesses a thorough understanding of all aspects within the phases of DMAIC, inclusive of statistical analysis. A LSSBB understands how to perform and interpret Lean Six Sigma tools and how to use standard principles of Lean.
A higher (NL: HBO/WO) education is preferred however we have seen experienced middle (NL: MBO) educated persons perform very well as LSSBB.
You can compare the certifying bodies such as IIBLC (more towards Lean), IASSC or ASQ. There are more, but these are the more common ones.
